The 7th Asian Film Awards held on March 18 was dotted with big stars and rocking fashions on the red carpet. Several plunging necklines and barely there fashions pushed Asian red carpet fashions to more daring heights, while many actresses opted for more conservative cuts.
BEST DRESSED: JESSICA C.
Model Jessica C. left the most memorable impression with her plunging sequined top and pants ensemble. The sequin detail is exquisite, and the sheer insets provide a tantalizing side view of Jessica’s curvaceous figure. Jessica looked glamorous and sexy, outshining more traditional fashions at the 7th Asian Film Awards. For an even classier look, Jessica should have custom hemmed her pants, traded in the earrings, and swept up her hair.
Miriam Yeung’s (楊千嬅) Viktor & Rolf gown is artfully draped. All folds flow from the bow at the neck, including the cold-shoulder sleeves, giving balance and symmetry to a look that may have otherwise been too heavy.
Niki Chow’s (周麗淇) dress is extremely light, and she may even be under-dressed for the occasion. But the beautiful color and sheerness of the dress made Niki look spring-sensational. Coupled with her impeccable makeup, Niki appeared vibrant and glowing.
The shoulder detail in Annie Liu’s (劉心悠) Chailie Ho (何裕釵) vanilla gown is beautiful. The bridal influences are a tad too strong for a red carpet event though.
Michelle Yeoh (楊紫瓊) glittered in an Elie Saab gown with magnificent diamonds, while Kwai Lun Mei (桂綸鎂) opted for a minimalist Christian Dior gown with a tapered skirt. The black-and-white peep-toe heels were a perfect match!
Gigi Leung (梁詠琪) wore two flattering Lanvin silhouettes which showcase her model figure and her never-ending limbs. The cut of the Lanvin dress on the right is beautiful, although the red-and-black combination would benefit in lighter hues.
The applique on Fiona Sit’s (薛凱琪) Gucci dress is beautiful, but the long length of the gown smothered her petite figure. Ada Liu (柳岩) and Christy Chung’s (鍾麗緹) dresses look ready to fall apart at the slightest gust of wind; fortunately no wardrobe disasters occurred.
The best view of Fala Chen’s (陳法拉) gown is from the back, in which the criss-cross black straps dip daringly low. However, the front view is disappointing as the motif, black bow and shapeless fit makes you wonder whether this is a nightgown or evening gown?
Mandy Lieu’s Valentino and Yuan Quan’s (袁泉) Givenchy dresses have overly busy prints that are best left in small doses or home furnishings.
